Here's a color combo you don't often see much of anymore - white appliances against a natural birch palette. Especially in a day in age where everyone wants that stainless steel, it's a refreshing take on traditional modern that we can definitely dig. Of course, that's not to rag on anyone who appreciates that moody stainless steel look. Combined with natural light and some of my favorite tech gadgets.... Tivoli Radio One. White is certainly not out this year - if anything, we might start seeing its mean comeback.
I always laugh when I see dogs that look like their owners. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but sometimes, the choice in a pet is such an unconscious and telling description of who you really are.... The same can be said for your front door. It's the first thing people see when they look at your house. In a way, it's a conjecture of who lives inside. If I see a $5000 stainless steel Neoporte door, I immediately thinkmodernist with expendable income. A door with a 'No Solicitors' sign? Well, that's a no brainercurmudgeon who hates puppies and babies, for sure. What does my front door look like? Absolutely plain and boring.

As mention in an earlier post we're looking to ditch our 80's nanna inspired bathroom. Goodbye to our beigey pinkish sink and hello to.... Rodgerseller's Roma Embossed Washbasin. Oh how that sweet pattern would make me smile in the morning. Coming in two sizes of 85cm and 52cm's wide and they can be wall hung or bench mounted- this sink could work in most bathroom layouts big or small. If the flora pattern offends you, this sink is also available with no decoration which has a nice medical feel to it. Also available to compliment these sinks are option towel rails, pedestal bases and chromed legs.
How do you fit a computer workstation, a small library of books, and your files into an entry hall? Click below to find out.... This entryway closet has been repurposed into a functional workspace. Overhead lights and a sliding door make the space feel less like a closet and more like an office, a corner desk takes up a sliver of space, and there's just enough room left over for a chair, some wall shelves, and a bulletin board. This photo comes from the Raumplus closet company, a German manufacturer of sliding doors. Like most catalog photos, it's a very staged shot, but it offers a lot of ideas for designing a home office in a small space. Our favorite detail is the ceiling shelves, which incorporate under-shelf lighting to illuminate the doorway and closet.

Local San Francisco designer Jay Jeffers took on the job of renovating a huge 1913 Presidio Heights home and injected plenty of modern decor details throughout some very traditional rooms. This dining room has very classic table.... ...and dining chairs but the side chairs are upholstered in a very current print and the artwork above the fireplace is both oversized and slightly offbeat. In addition to the traditional carpet and velvet-upholstered sofas, the sitting room features bright walls, colorful sconces and a modern painting in a vibrant shade of lime green. The powder room includes an antique mirror and mirrored vanity, but the bold, all over large size patterned wallpaper is a very non-traditional choice, as is the more contemporary sink design. A large, luxurious bath uses classic materials such as subway tile and marble surfaces but is made modern by the unusual mirror placement in front of the windows and the bright saturated blue hue used on the cabinetry. The lounge has traditional touches such as wood panels on the walls and club chairs but the pattern on pattern design of the room feels current.
